Demon Magic and a Martini ( The Guild Codex: Spellbound 4) by Annette Marie

Hello to all,

On this sunny day i decided to share with you my opinion on lastest book in the Guild Codex Spellbound series by Annette Marie. It's a bit special since i've read the spin off first and that it covers some of the events we read about in this book but it just added to my pleasure ( both series can be read independently of each other) i just wanted more of Tori and since book 5 release this fall i wa,ted to be ready.

so enjoy!

Description from goodreads :

 When I first landed a bartending job at the local guild, I didn't know a thing about magic. These days, I'm practically an expert on the different magical classes, but there's one nobody ever talks about: Demonica.

Turns out they have a good reason for that.

My guild is strictly hellion-free, but some people will risk life and soul to control the biggest bullies on the mythic playground. And now a demon has been loosed in the city.

My three best friends are determined to slay it, but even badass combat mages are critically out-magicked. And that's not all. The monster they're tracking--it's not hiding. It's not fleeing. It's not leaving a trail of corpses everywhere it goes.

The demon is hunting too. And in a city full of mythics, it's searching for deadlier prey.

If we can't unravel the demon's sinister motivations, more innocent people will die, but finding the answers means digging into dark secrets ... and learning truths I never wanted to know.

Note: The three mages are definitely sexy, but this series isn't a reverse harem. It's 100% fun, sassy, fast-paced urban fantasy.

My opinion:
          I really love this series so i couldn't wait to be up to date and ready for book 5 this fall but  i admit that while i love it this is my least favourite so far. It's wonderfully written full of action, humour and emotion a real page turner  read in one sitting but  2 of our favourites mages disappointed me.
Aaron and Kai were really disappointing ...they know Tori and they know how she reacts so accusing her not to care was totally out of character . They protect Erza yes but he is the only one acting normal towards Tori ( bonus point for him)

That being said  this story was fabulous and we see a new side of Darius too.....i loved the tarot cards as welll because let's be honest ^^ Tori and the magical artefacts is a funny tale, i do wonder what she will get each time as we can't accuse her not to be practical.  Tori is as always loyal to her friends and taking risks for them and that include fighting demons.

i loved to see her reactions to some new characters and that include one named Zylas i do hope to see more interactions between them.

We are learning quite a lot about Erza and lot of others topics in this book which makes me just more impatient for next one. A series not to be missed!

A small note, we can see part of this story from other characters point of view in the spin off Taming Demons for beginner, you don't have to read it to enjoy the Spellbound series but it's really a funny addition and it can also be read as stand alone so in any case you wouldn't regret it, it does deepen this story.

Score:  4/5
